Love, Lies and Lessons

After almost three years, looking back, I see it wasn’t sudden. The time I had spent seemingly embracing the best days of my life were actually the days of absolute misery. (Tramadol) Chasing an unattainable ideal left me discontent as my life paled beside the fabricated romances I craved. Apart from that, seeking validation in likes and comments, I fell into a cycle of comparison and self-doubt.

The impact on my physical and mental health was undeniable. The sweet escape of oh-so-good novels, mindless entertainment, and social media addiction left me yearning for a non-existent reality and distorted my perception of love, relationships, and self-worth. I felt overwhelmed and trapped in a world that promised happiness but only gave temporary highs and lasting lows.

A lesson learned: the story sheds light on how it is crucial for us to recognise the impact of the content we consume every day. In this age of constant connectivity and instant gratification, we must be vigilant in guarding our hearts and minds against the pitfalls of seeking validation and fulfilment in fabricated narratives.

As we close the pages of this chapter, let it serve as a reminder to be mindful of the stories we immerse ourselves in. Let us choose narratives that inspire us to grow, be the better versions of ourselves, and celebrate the unique beauty of each individual journey. For, it is in embracing our own stories, with all their twists and turns, that we can truly find the best endings — the ones with happily ever afters!
